I am one of those corny twin moms that like to dress her twins a like. I just think it is the cutest thing to see two babies in the same or similar outfits. So in celebration of my obsession to have Sai and Kai dressed like a R&B boy band, here are some outfits I think are way too adorable.
I will more than likely be spending A LOT of money on Etsy so that my babies can be dressed in many more twin outfits 🙂
Make sure you check out my vlog channel That Chick Angel TV and meet the twins in my latest video upload!
It seems like an overwhelming amount of people ask me if I have any pregnancy cravings. To be honest, I didn’t have food cravings with my first pregnancy or this one either. Now granted I LOVE a big juicy pickle every now and again but I’m not taunted by the taste in the middle of the night. More times than not, I have food aversions. It was way worse when I was pregnant with Lil’ Marcus. I avoided the taste of fish or bake chicken like the plague. Bake chicken for some reason tasted like aluminum foil. So that meant if I was eating chicken it had to be either fried (YUMMMM!) or grilled. With this pregnancy, in my first trimester I could not stand sweet foods. As hot as it was in California ice cream always seemed like a good idea at first, but as soon as it would hit my stomach, nausea would set in IMMEDIATELY. Well, now that I am in my 2nd trimester, there are some foods that will make me travel a long distance just because my twins and I want it. Here is my list of Pregnancy Food Favorites.
- Spicy Sashimi Salad – This salad is made of raw ahi tuna and raw salmon coated in a spicy marinate on top of a bed of mix green vegetables with an Asian Salad dressing. Yes I know pregnant women are advised not to eat raw fish because of certain bacteria and mercury levels. But I am very careful to make sure the fish is of good quality and I only eat it at most 2x a month. My favorite place to buy it is San Sai Japanese Grill.
- Broth based soups – Whether it is Chicken Noodle Soup or Chicken Tortilla Soup or some other chicken soup. I love chicken broth based soups. I think its all the salt and sodium that my mouth craves but typically one bowl of soup fills me up without making me too bloated. Sometimes that is half the battle when I eat these days. My favorite chicken tortilla soup is at El Pollo Loco.
- Fried Potatoes and Onions – First of all the smell is intoxicating all by itself. I love when the aroma from the cooked onions starts to leave the pan and fill the room. And if the potatoes are really fancy then there is the smell of garlic in the air as well. The only thing about this dish is that it is easy for me to overeat and then feel stuff and uncomfortable for hours later. But sometimes…its worth it. My favorite place for fried potatoes is in my own kitchen, cooked by me.
- MILK – This item really shouldn’t be on this list because it has been my favorite beverage all of my life. Thank the Lord, my stomach still loves even when I am pregnant. It doesn’t matter how bloated I get, there is always room for a large cold glass of milk. And not the imitation almond-soy-it should even be called milk-crap. I like that good old fashion, out of the teet of cow white stuff. And yes, I know that milk is comprised of mucus, blood, and some other stuff that sounds nasty but who knew that it taste so good when its mixed together. LOL. My favorite is 2% milk but I do drink whole milk as a second option.
Well I think that’s it for now. Thanks for checking out my blog! Make sure you check out my YouTube channel, That Chick Angel TV for more pregnancy updates and fun content. Talk to you guys next week!
I love going to the gym now that my baby bump is more visible. You know why? Because no matter how lame my workouts are now that I am pregnant, I still make the most muscular men look like a bunch of weak b*tches. I can look over at the guy who wishes he was Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, that is clearly squatting over 400lbs and know without a doubt my workout is intimidating him. Yeah, I might only be doing squats with two 12lbs weights but I’m also helping turn squishy cartilage into strong bones for my babies. So you LOSE sir and I WIN! And yes, I see you too, Ms. Malibu Barbie with the high fake boobs and the tan 8-pack abs. Well guess what, I have a 14-pack. I still have two abs that are visible in the right light plus my two sons growing in my stomach are ripped with their own 6-packs. So ma’am you can have several seats because again, you LOSE and I WIN!!! The fact that I can run 2 miles on a treadmill at a 6.5 speed without peeing on myself makes me a freakin’ AMERICAN GLADIATOR! So old lady who has been sprinting for the past hour on a 5% incline with a fanny pack on, go somewhere and eat an Activia! Because, you guessed it, you LOSE and I WIN! But hey, people at gym, please don’t get too bad of a self-esteem when you see my jiggling belly walk past you to go get 10 lbs weights to do some bicep curls, while also developing the lunges of two fetuses. We can’t all win at life or working out. One day you too can have 20% body fat and still be the strongest person in the weight room.
Now would one of you lovely muscular people like to help me to my car because I can not feel my legs…
So I am officially 15 weeks and 1 day pregnant and I have to say, even though my 1st trimester was difficult as hell, the 2nd trimester has come with its own trials and tribulations. Well, in general being pregnant can make things just a tad more complicated than usual. For instance, I have a very strong immune system. However when I am pregnant it is a lot easier for me to catch sicknesses from other people. In this most recent case, I caught a cold from someone who will remain nameless (because I am not sure who it was). This cold gave me a sore throat but even worse, it has made me sneeze…A LOT. Now the sneezing wouldn’t bother me so much if my already fickle bladder wasn’t under a lot of pressure from two babies cramping its space. So now, I’m not only quickly reaching for tissue to keep mucous from flying all across me and others, I am using every leg and abdominal muscle to try and keep urine from flying out too. Well apparently I did not do enough reps on my Thigh Master Machine growing up but no amount of squeezing is keeping me from peeing on myself like a toddler. And its not like a little tickle that could possibly be ignored, NO! It is a full blown “Let’s empty a 1/4 of your bladder out into your clothes and your pretty panties” type of situation.
You would think I would have learned my lesson by now and just wear a pad or adult diaper during the day but I am way too hard headed. Plus, I like to wear leggings and Depends diapers give the worst panty line. So for now, I have resigned from wearing white pants and try to keep an extra change of clothes in my adult diaper bag. 🙂

Here’s what I looked like at 8 weeks pregnant. I wasn’t really showing but I knew the twins were there.
So with my first son Marcus, I had morning sickness my entire first trimester but I never threw up. I was so grateful once I figured out how to keep my morning sickness under control that it wasn’t a big problem at all. Well, these twins decided to do things a little differently. My first trimester this pregnancy, I had morning sickness through out the day, all day long. There was never a remedy to keep it from happening. The only relief I did find was that if I woke up in the middle of the night, like around 1am, and ate something greasy, I would be fine in the morning. Well, I did make it through my entire 1st trimester of this pregnancy without vomiting! YAY!! But then came the 2nd trimester. While I don’t get morning sickness anymore, I have thrown up on three separate occasions. The first two times were in the same day and each of those times had me so very worried. The occurrences seemed to be so violent and aggressive that it made my abdominal muscles sore for the rest of the day. I keep getting nervous that I had dislodged a baby or I was going to lose of them. Every time I went to the restroom that day I was making sure that there was no spotting. Thank God there wasn’t.
Well the third time I puked wasn’t as scary, actually it was quite comical. This happened earlier today before I got home to write this blog. I had just finished a really great workout at the gym. I jogged two miles and then did squats, lunges, and leg lifts, all while laughing loudly at reruns of Arrested Development. When I left the gym, I finished my container of water and ate the banana I had in my car. I then drove to the grocery store because I have to get all of my errands done early in the day because it is hot as BALLS in California. While sitting in the parking lot, I noticed that my body temperature was rising very fast. So I opened the door of my car and puked up every bit of banana and water that was in my system. The pregnant woman in the car beside me just shook her head in disgust at me. LOL. I guess she thought I was hung over. Well once I finished decorating the parking lot with my snack, I ate the rest of my banana and went inside to grocery shop. I am hoping that is the last time my food will try to make an exit from the “entrance only” door but with these twins, I doubt it. SMH.

We are expecting TWINS next year!! OMG I can not believe this at all. There is so much to tell you but I am not going to try and do that in all one post on this blog. Yes, my husband and I changed our minds and decided to add one more child to our family. And no, we weren’t planning or trying to get pregnant with twins. This is just God’s little way of showing me that no matter how many “To Do Lists” I create, He is “To Do List” is the only one that matters. I am currently 13 weeks pregnant but I have been recording pregnancy vlogs almost the entire time I have been pregnant. So even though you might be joining me 1/3 of the way through this journey, I will posting all the videos I have recorded during my pregnancy in the weeks coming. You will get to see my friends and family’s reaction to finding out that I am pregnant with twins, including my husband and my son. These reactions are HILARIOUS. You will even get to see the ultrasound and hear MY REACTION to finding out instead of one baby I am having TWO! So sit back and watch this crazy UNEXPECTED story unfold. But make sure you follow this blog so that you can get update on the things I don’t have time to put up on my YouTube Channel, That Chick Angel TV. Also make sure you check out how I announced it to the ladies at The Mom’s View and how I announced it on my channel!
This is my two babies at 8 weeks. Yep they are fraternal twins.
